good morning, everyone. i'm carolyn tyler. let's check the weather with lies sa argen. >> here's a live look at live doppler 7 where we're clear of rain but we widen the perspective and, check it out, several storm systems are lined up. first one coming in tonight is a 1 on our storm impact scale. it will be breezy at times but a few hints of sun. upper 40s to lower 50s. another mild afternoon with cloudy skies. 50 degrees on the peninsula and south bay and the evening, that's a different story. we will time-out on sunday,
monday and tuesday and wednesday's rain coming up. >> lisa, thank you. developing news this morning. the ninth circuit court of appeals has denied a response by the justice department's ban of muslim country. the ban will remain on hold until at least tomorrow when legal responses are expected from the federal judge who blocked mr. trump's executive order and from the justice department which wants it restored. the justice department says the injunction immediately harms the public by thwarting enforcement of an executive order issued by the president, based on his national security judgment. lisa amin has more.
>> reporter: the restraining order issued by a washington state fred d state judge and i think it's unlikely that they would reverse this order. it's unlikely that they would vacate the store. >> reporter: this professor says the emergency motion argued president trump has the power to regulate immigration and protect our borders. little insists that the current executive order is way too broad. >> we want to keep our bad guys and terrorists but you're keeping out more than that. you're keeping out people that have been vetted, et cetera. >> reporter: this 12-year-old is an example. she was born in yemen to a mother who recently became a u.s. citizen. that means yemen did not qualify as a u.s. citizen and has been living in yemen without her parents. she has her visa and is due to arrive at sfo on sunday. still, her attorneys are worried. >> if there were an emergency
stay issued that stopped this temporary restraining order from being applied, then we would go back to having the executive order enforced and she could potentially be stranded again. >> reporter: the judges could make a decision at any time, but experts believe it likely will be early next week. in san francisco, lisa am amin gulezian, abc7 news. in florida, an estimated 3,000 protesters chanted against the now blocked executive order near the president's private mar-a-lago estate. president trump hosted a fund-raiser there last night for the international red cross. the protesters set up a flag that they say represents the death of democracy. president trump tweeted, "the judge opens up our country to potential terrorists and others that do not have our best interests at heart. bad people are very happy."

country that were organized as a demonstration of momentum to keep pressure on the administration. >> this is the second weekend of protests against president donald trump's executive order and speakers are encouraging people to do more than turn out at rallyings. >> organizing means talking to members of congress and trying to get them at all avenues, writing to them, showing up for the town hall meetings. >> reporter: it was a multicultural, multinational group. these two people are originally from iran and came here to protest against president trump. >> the way he's acting leading the country is going to which reminds me of back home. >> reporter: this event was peaceful. there were no counter protesters. members of the bay area's yemeni community joined that protest after first holding a mee meeting in san francisco. their message, don't keep us

travel overseas. he's speaking through an interpreter. >> he's a green card holder so with the trump tragedy right now, holding people at airports, he's worried about being one of those guys. >> none of us have ever committed a crime. we are all law-abiding citizens. we pay our tax. we work hard. >> reporter: eric thomas, abc7 news. a family who visited iran for an engagement party will now be reunited after several members were delayed coming back to the bay area because of the travel ban. one relative arrived yesterday. the family doesn't know why he was held in custody despite being a green card holder. >> all of the security status steps we took. >> the family's confused, they're worried but thankful for the support here in the bay area. stay on top of all of the developments with the abc7 news

escorted out of a town hall after he took questions from the crowd asking about climate change, the president's immigration order and the affordable care act. his answers sometimes led to loud boos. security officials capped attendance at 200. outside, a smaller crowd. some upset that they could not get in. >> we were trying to educate ourselves and figure out how to get our message out and let people know we're worried. it's amazing how many people showed up. >> mcclintock says there was an anarchist element to the meeting. no one was arrested. some bay area public school teachers are urging senators to vote against president trump's choice for education secretary. yesterday, abc7 news was at the fairmont hotel in san jose where the message was loud and clear at a california's teacher

the fans -- >> falcons! >> reporter: -- the players, the excitement. a showdown in houston. patriots quarterback tom brady already has four championship rings. matt ryan is hoping to win the atlanta falcons their first. >> for sure, i'm confident in what i can do. >> reporter: brady is facing more than one opponent. the 39-year-old is still battling the ghosts of deflategate and roger goodell's four-game suspension at the beginning of the season. >> it was litigated, as you know, extensively. so we're moving on from that. >> the attention should be on this game. >> reporter: brady showed some emotion when talking to reporters. >> well, i think my dad is my hero because he's the one that i look up to every day. >> reporter: so far, both teams seem to be embracing the festive
atmosphere. >> this is an opportunity of a lifetime. ever since i was a little kid, i wasn't -- you know, i didn't think i was going to go to the nfl. >> reporter: some even acting like fans themselves when asked about lady gaga's halftime show. the singer has been rehearsing for months. >> i want to keep as much of the show as a surprise as possible. >> reporter: also luke brian will sing the "national anthem" and former president george h.w. bush, recently released from the hospital, will do the ceremonial coin toss with wife barbara. it's hard to believe this is finally about to happen. more than a million people are here but only 70,000 fan also get to see super bowl 5'li live. i'm not one of them.
>> jeff, i wonder, the scalpers have to be pretty busy right about now. what are you hearing about ticket prices? >> oh, yeah, they sure are. we saw a guy show up with a sign that says, need two tickets. the price if you want to sit at the 50 yard line, about $9,000 per ticket. don't worry, i've got you covered. if you want to sit at the top of nrg, $2,700. you hop on a plane to san francisco, get to houston in time for the game, you buy the tickets, i'll buy the beer. how about that. >> i probably have enough time but not enough money. thanks, jeff. see you later. lady gaga mentioned that she's trying to keep her show secret but we can tell you this about her halftime show. it will feature hundreds of lit-up drones. cnn reports the inclusion of unmanned aerial vehicles required clearance from the
federal aviation administration which placed a ban on drones at or within 34 miles or so of the stadium but the no drone zone obviously does not apply to gaga. it will be the first time the super bowl halftime show has incorporated drones. and if you're heading out to a super bowl party, aaa is providing its free tipsy tow program. it's available to everyone even if you aren't a aaa member. call 1-800-aaa-help. service begins tonight and ends at 5:00 in the morning. the ninth circuit court of appeals in san francisco has denied the request to lift the restraining order on president trump's travel ban. a washington state judge issued that restraining order friday night and the president took to social media to respond and mocked the judge. he tweeted, "what is our country
coming to when a judge can halt a homeland security travel ban and anyone, even with bad intentions, can come into the u.s.?" and he says the opinion of this so-called judge which takes law enforcement away from our country is ridiculous and will be overturned. he reiterated that at his florida estate. outside the estate, protesters chanted against and in favor of the president. california senator dianne feinstein is responding to the federal appeals' court refusal and appeared on fox news and senator feinstein says, "the executive order has caused tension between the three branches of government." >> this is done within the scope of executive power and the challenge to executive power i think can be made, is appropriate to be made when you
think it's succeeded and people in terms of particularly the muslim ban aspect of this believes that the president's executive power has been exceeded. >> senator feinstein says she has no doubt this will go all the way to the supreme court to decide whether president trump has exceeded his authority. surprising video shows a laptop computer exploding into flames. security cameras at a home in thousand oaks in southern california show flames shooting out of a 4-year-old dell laptop plugged in and placed on a couch. it happened twice inside the home and then twice after it was unplugged and brought outside. >> i was just like in shock. i didn't know what was happening. i didn't really know what to do. >> the family says the fire appears to have come from the laptop's lithium ion battery. it was recalled in 2006 because
of a risk of fire and is promising to investigate this case. never charge your laptop on a bed or couch. only on a hard surface. don't leave it plugged in when you go to sleep or leave for work. if you're taking b.a.r.t. today, expect delays of at least 15 to 20 minutes. crews are removing trees on an emergency basis and trains will be single tracking through san francisco. trains from dublin will have to be changed to get the daily city. the delays will be in effect until 4:30 this afternoon. still ahead on abc7 mornings, the new high-tech way to improve your smartphone's reception and how the city of san francisco is involved. and here's a live look from our sutro camera.

here's shu with the highlights in sports. >> they are 0-2 for overtime games and last night there was a lot of drama. head coach steve kerr went ballistic and got tossed in the third quarter. there was a monster reverse donk and 32 points. steer kerr gets rejected after showing his frustration with the officiating and a few choice words for you lip readers. curry, three. clay thompson, three. right before the end of the third, steph, watch this, three. he's pumped. 82-82. alley-oop here puts the kings up seven. draymond hurts his knee. this game goes into overtime. six in the extra frame. are you kidding, in steph curry

five tumbles and an interception returned for a touchdown. meanwhile, matt ryan won his first mvp award but this is a bad sign for those picking the falcons. kurt warner was the last one to do both in 1999 for the rams. speaking of water, he's one of seven new members of the nfl hall of fame. the other six, terrell davis, jason taylor, anderson and cowboys owner jerry jones made it as a contributor. that's the way the ball bounces. i'm mike shumann, have a great day. good sunday morning to you. nice a quiet. things are changing this evening. a 1 on the storm impact scale. a lot of cloud cover in the pacific but we're looking at the system behind it that will

phones all on one block. but at&t has announced a solution for rural areas that, like this one, uses poles that are already there. >> this is a radical, new approach delivering multigigabyte speeds. >> they are calling it air gig. >> take this into areas where fiber may not be deployed and very expensive. >> reporter: instead of fiber, air gig gets its connection from airwaves, like what they use to scan your body at the airport and draws magnetic charging. it's still a few years out. >> we see this as a step towards the 5g. >> reporter: because for all of the data we use, we'll be online once cars drive themselves. >> what are you going to do with that time? >> reporter: in san francisco,
